I’ve referenced and posted links to some stuff that Julie Rodgers has spoken about or written about before, but I just think that everyone should read this. It’s such a real, honest, not-angry explanation of part of what it’s like to be one of us.
I sincerely appreciate her and everything that she’s done to advocate for LGBT people. That’s so important, especially in today’s world where the sides have been getting even more heated than before. We need this kind of light and love shining into this topic.
Finally, I can also attest that I’ve also experienced what she wrote about in the first three paragraphs with almost the exact same reaction. It feels good to feel like you fit in and belong, like you don’t have to wear a mask and pretend to be something that you’re not, and that’s not a wrong thing to feel because I think it dimly reflects what we can find in Christ and in an ideal Christian community. Ah. So yeah, read this. She has some really good things to say.
